UltraFast Optical Communications and High-performance Integrated Photonics (UFO-CHIP)

Group Leader: Amol Choudhary

Welcome to our group page!

Our group is located in the Department of Electrical Engineering at IIT Delhi. We work broadly in the area of Optics and Photonics, specifically in microwave photonics, nonlinear optics, optical communications, and on-chip lasers.

Applications of our research: The overarching theme of our research is in the development of next-generation photonic integrated circuits for future communication systems and to reduce the size, weight and power consumption.

The deadline to apply for PhD programs was on 30 March 2019. The next round will open later in the year.
